I bought my Capitol Kaleidoscope after seeing on Best Things in Beauty. There's a dearth of pink shadows in my collection and I can never resist purple! The Capitol Kaleidoscope is exclusive to the Mazza Gallerie Neiman Marcus in Washington, DC.
From top to bottom the colors are:
Pink Tendre: matte pink
Peche Or: rose with a hint of peach
Taupe Satine: taupe
Prune Veloure: semi-matte purple
I thought I would have little use for the matte pink, but it is much more subtle on the brow than in the swatches above. Peche Or, which I thought was a dupe of LMdB blush Echo, is actually more pink than peach; it contains just enough peach to prevent that rabbit eye look.
Taupe Santine, which I thought was a dupe for the one of the taupes in Le Circe is actually much warmer, a nice complement for Pink Tendre and Peche Or, adding a subtle golden sheen. The Le Circe taupes are gray.
Prune Veloure is warmer/redder than the purple in Le Cirque. It is not completely matte, but doesn't have as much shimmer as that in Le Cirque or Taupe Satine.
Unfortunately I had to work when Erin Lockhart was in town to do makeovers, and I had little time for Michael Reinheart, Mazza NM's LMdB rep and the creator of Capitol Kaleidoscope, to apply the colors when I picked up the kaleidoscope this weekend, so I had to apply the shadows a Couche de Colours myself. The effect is a subtle, finished look that is perfect for the office.
Le Metier had a nice gift with this purchase, a generous sample of their eye makeup remover, which is coming soon, and a trio of eye shadows.
I believe the Capitol Kaleidoscope is sold out, but you can call Michael Reinhardt at 202-966-9700, ext. 2258, to see if there are plans to produce additional kits.
